This work is devoted to an overview of the physical processes that underlie a recently developed method for the photosynthesis of nanoparticles. The results of nanoparticle synthesis under the condensation of supersaturated atomic vapor produced by the photodissociation of carbon- and metal-bearing compounds are demonstrated. The different factors affecting the formation kinetics of carbon and metal nanoparticles are analyzed. The type and pressure of the diluent gas are shown to play a significant role in the particle growth processes. The influence of energy exchange processes between the excited clusters and surrounding gas molecules on the rate and mechanism of condensation is analyzed.
